Pirates Weekend in Plymouth

Get ready for a swashbuckling day enjoying the best of the high seas 7-8 May 2022


Ohhh arrr! The pirates are coming to Plymouth! This award-winning family event attracts thousands of visitors and locals eager to join in with the festivities, listen to shanties, dance and enjoy the entertainment on offer. A  range of pirate-themed ales will also be on offer across the Barbican pubs during the weekend.

The Plymouth Pirate Weekend has been successfully running since 2011 and year on year it proved to be very popular with the visitors and locals enjoying the free events on offer. Enjoy an adventure-filled day out for the whole family as you wander the streets of the Barbican and Sutton Harbour.

Two tall ships, The Phoenix and Grayhound, will be docked in Sutton Harbour for you to hop aboard and hoist the mainsail! Watch out for arch-enemies Jonty Depp and Captain Barbossa roaming the streets, meet the magical Madame Galleon and be enchanted by Melody the Mermaid.

There’s plenty more entertainment too, with puppeteers, stilt walkers, storytellers, displays and a programme of shanty bands to enjoy. Children will love the Giant Octopus soft play on The Parade or getting creative with arts and crafts activities.
